CHRIS STEWART RUMORS

Stewart, Cole developing strong chemistry

Chris Stewart isn't Gerrit Cole's personal catcher, but he has caught Cole in each of his past five starts. “I know what he’s thinking out there, he knows what I’m thinking,” Stewart told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I know how to get the best out of him, when to settle him down at times.” While Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has said that Francisco Cervelli will also...

Chris Stewart < 500

If you’ve been paying much attention to the evolution of the sabermetric-leaning public’s understanding of catcher framing for the last couple years, you know that it feels like more of a positive feedback loop than anything: every study that comes out seems to amplify the effect of good framing catchers even further. Last month, Jonathan Judge, Harry Pavlidis, and Dan Brooks...

Pirates activate Chris Stewart, demote Tony Sanchez

The Pirates officially announced today that Chris Stewart has been activated from the disabled list and Tony Sanchez will be sent back to Triple-A. There has been a lot of discussion about this move over the course of the season since Sanchez is off to a hot start with his bat. I’m personally a bit torn; Stewart’s defense reputation is pretty incredible, and Sanchez really has...

News and notes: Trade rumors, Stewart/Sanchez, Lambo

This looked like it was going to be a mostly drama-free spring for the Pirates — and to this point, I would say it still has been — but recently a few issues have popped up that could cause the Bucs to make some last minute changes. Opening Day is less than two weeks away now, so it’s getting close to roster-crunch time. There are some trade rumors surrounding Vin Mazzaro...

Monday news: Stewart, Snider, Chambers

After a week of nothingness, there was a lot of Pirates news on Monday. The most notable was a trade with the Yankees that will bring catcher Chris Stewart to Pittsburgh in exchange for a player to be named later. Michael McKenry was designated for assignment to make room for Stewart, and it seems that Stewart will be the guy backing up Russell Martin in 2014. Much like Garrett Jones…it...

Yankees trade Chris Stewart to Pittsburgh for another bucket of fried chicken

The Yankees today traded catcher Chris Stewart to Pittsburgh for what is expected to be an obscure low-end prospect, meaning the Yankees are cornering the market on obscure former Pirate minor leaguers.  (See A.J. Burnett for Diego Moreno and Exicardo Cayones.)  We weren't going to offer Stewart a 2014 contract, so at midnight, he would become a free agent. Apparently, Brian Cashman...
